I don't recall having any problems removing that piece. It was a couple of years ago though.
Have you tried tapping it out with a punch and a hammer?

i will copy this solution.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s29E1CN_k6U

In my opinion., you should find a better design to copy.   If you want to make it realistic, that is.
That design only has about 50-60 degrees of movement each way with the for the ailerons, where the real thing has 105 degrees each way.

Another issue would be the way the cables are terminated, that would allow a lot of play between the 2 yokes,

Again, this is just my opinion, there are many different ways to do this.

Also Craig is quite correct, that bolt should just tap out with a punch.  It will be a friction fit into the bearings which is why its just turns.

Thanks all. I will focus also on Scotts design, looks pro and seems to work awesome in his videos.

Scott: Do you have to adjust anything after a couple of years? Like cable tension etc, or is your setup as it was in the videos still?

The original setup requires too much height. About 50-60cm, too much for my room. I took the boxes apeart last night, will use the wheels and bearings. Hopefully this setup will be easy. (Almost as easy as the Original setup)
